Gartner CIO briefing: The future of client computing

Users and IT administrators now ask different things of their desktop devices, and these
various needs result in a greater diversity of devices, more choice and better value. The
criteria associated with desktop devices go far beyond performance, because issues such
as cost, power consumption, form factor, useful life and expandability have varying
degrees of importance for many organisations.


The arrival of Hosted Virtual Desktops (HVDs), streaming, and the general decoupling of
software from device hardware have increased the range of options for delivering client
computing capabilities.

  • A Computer Weekly buyer's guide to desktop computing 2020

    Enterprise IT no longer revolves around Windows-based desktops and the support of Windows applications. Tablets, smartphones, cloud computing and applications delivered as a service offer compelling new ways to work. In this 11-page buyer’s guide, Computer Weekly looks at how this new way of working is likely to evolve further over the next five years and how it will affect users and IT departments alike.

  • Windows 10 EMM capabilities lead to cost savings

    For more than two decades, the Windows PC has dominated the enterprise computing landscape as the main productivity tool for knowledge workers in every industry. In the past few years, however, modern mobile devices have started to change the enterprise IT infrastructure — and the model of device management and security along with it.

    Today, end users are no longer exclusively tethered to a desktop. They work on a variety of devices — mobile and desktop, personal and corporate-owned, locked-down and securely enabled. As a result, the traditional legacy management tools that have been so useful in protecting Windows PC resources are no longer adequate to securely manage this rapidly changing environment. Top industry analysts have already noted that enterprises should move at least some their endpoint management workload to enterprise mobility management (EMM) platforms.

    Read this whitepaper to learn how using EMM to secure and manage your PCs can significantly reduce total cost of ownership by up to 80% across three key areas such as IT operations, helpdesk administration and licensing costs.
